Time to reflect


Excellent and useful article on reflection…

Class Teaching


We all know that a teacher’s favourite month is August…for obvious reasons!  That said though, there’s something strangely satisfying about September.  It’s a time to reflect on the year that has just gone and think about what went well and what you want to focus on over the coming year.  I like the fact that we have a re-start every September.

SOW for the New Term


Useful Scheme of Work for Year 7 project – Earphone Tidy…


As I am kind and thoughtful I thought I would share a detailed SOW with you, take some of that workload off.

Earphone Tidies SOW inspired by @jamesbleach: Y7_EarphoneTidy
